I made this Blanket Chest from plans in FWW magazine featuing Tommy McDonald. The wood is 5 year old, air dried Walnut, that I found on Craigs List about 30 miles from here ($3.00 BF) and he still has about 3,500 BF. The finish started with one part BLO X one part mineral spitits X 1 part oil base Urathine. Followed by 2 coats of Shellac and one coat of Satin Urethane. Tommy, featured carved panels on his chest and I tried it but found there are some things that are a little over my head. I scraped the panel and settled for the Walnut to showcase the project.
